This museum contains all types of memorabilia from the Bat Mobile to the Stage Coach. It is a trip through history for all but for me, also a trip down memory lane - not only mine but images shown to me by my mother. It...More
Never been to this museum of the smithsonian but loved it. Line to get in was long due to a significant lack of security stations open but still worth the wait. Really enjoyed exhibits showing the history of the US. Museum is just another testament...More
Pros: we really enjoyed the first floor of this museum, especially the section on American Enterprise. The Star Spangled Banner was neat too. Cons: we waited about 30 minutes outside to get through security, and some areas of the museum seemed like they could use...More
We went to this museum after being disappointed that the air and space museum was under construction so a lot of the exhibits could not be seen. We were pleasantly surprised to find out how large this museum was. Our kids (6 & 9) really...More
Great displays and some interactive. We played Price as Right game for the 1800's. Fun seeing cost of living back then. Another cold museum though so dress warmly. It was hot outside but really cold inside all museums in DC.
Not to be confused with the Museum of NATURAL History, this museum examines our American history and culture. Unlike the Natural History Museum that goes into much depth about the exhibits, this museum is easy on the eyes, more relaxing and not overly involved. As...More
I think this is one of the nicest museums to visit in DC. The history in here is so amazing. The gowns from all the First Ladies is really impressive. My daughters love the huge dollhouse with miniature furniture. My dad was in the Vietnam...More

You should prioritize at least two hours. Like many museums, there are key pieces you will WANT to see, such as the iconic top hat Lincoln was wearing the night he was assassinated. There is really something for everyone...the Batmobile used in the first Batman movie, a US gold coin worth roughly 2.4m dollars, music memorabilia, you name it. My wife and I felt far too rushed but we had only an hour when we visited. There was much more we would like to see.
